Musician Michael Franti, frontman for folk funksters Spearhead, was so troubled by the Iraq war that he went to the Middle East to experience the conflict firsthand. Staying outside the American-controlled Green Zone, he "would just start playing music on a street corner, or walk down the street and play music for people. People would be drawn to it, and I was the first American they'd ever met that wasn't carrying an M-16." We talk to him about how he turned his experience into a new CD, entitlted "Yell Fire!," and a book and DVD called "I Know I'm Not Alone."

Also, Working Assets co-founder Peter Barnes has just published "Capitalism 3.0," which looks at how corporations exploit the "commons" -- the environment, the airwaves, and anything else that's not already private property. "They gobble up as much of what is not claimed as property and try to convert it into something that they own and can charge for use. The commons is shrinking because of this constant appropriation by corporations."

Plus, we talk to journalist Sidney Blumenthal about his new collection of essays, "How Bush Rules: Chronicles of a Radical Regime." Blumenthal writes that Bush is "a uniquely radical president seeking to concentrate power in an unaccountable executive." He tells us that he trace's Bush's rise to power "back through the people around him who have had this vision which I think they imparted to him. Particularly Vice President Cheney, who was the deputy to Donald Rumsfeld in the Nixon White House. In that White House, Cheney and Rumsfeld learned the lesson that there should be no limits on the imperial presidency."

Finally, we talk to the authors of "Destined for Destiny" -- Bush's "unauthorized autobiography." Producer Peter Hilleren and Onion editor Scott Dikkers tell us why Bush says "I wanted to give folks a chance to see what's in my heart, and less importantly, my brain." Plus, the commander in chief himself stops by for a quick cameo.
